Derry City Football Club are aware that the FAI are considering a number of candidates for the vacant role of manager of the Republic of Ireland football team including Stephen Kenny.
We would like to wish Stephen every success in the process and if selected we believe he would be an excellent choice.
Currently Stephen is the most successful manager in the League of Ireland and his appointment would be just reward for his commitment to the local league and the success he has achieved in raising the profile of the league in European competition.
With a number of former Derry City players and other League of Ireland players representing the national team we would be delighted to see a former manager of our club having the ultimate honour of managing the Irish national team.
We wish him every success.
Derry City Football Club.
